Log Book #3 - List of Carvings and Hours Used to Complete Carvings 1938

The entries in this Log Book #3 of Pauline Miller Cowan,  record a few pieces of work she completed while employed by the Tryon Toy Makers and also notes some work as a carver. She enters the specific name of the task and generally records the hours she spent completing the work and the date of completion. She sometimes signals the end of the project by the use of the word "Fini" after she had fully executed the project. This log book also contains information on pricing of items from the Tryon Toy-Makers and Carvers.

A wise old Owl
Lived in and Oak
The more he heard
The less he spoke.
The less he spoke
The more he heard
Why aren't we
like that old bird?
